 Henry Bartle Frere, a controversal colonial administrator who deliberately started the Zulu War and the first Boer War. And Gladstone blamed him for the war in Afghanistan. Who knows why he got a statue? Blame the Prince of Wales.

 
      
 General James Outram was the hero of the Indian Mutiny. There is also a statue of him on horseback in Kolkata (Calcutta) where his role in the Great Uprising is probably remembered less favourably. It was moved to the Victoria Memorial in 1958 and replaced by a statue of Ghandi.

Outram's equestrian statue was copied (badly) by Indian sculptor Marathi Nagesh Yoglekar for his statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, a great Inidan nationalist who tried to enlist the help of Hitler to free India from the British yoke. From Germany he went to Japan and set up with their help the Indian National Army and the Provisional Government of Free India. When the INA and Japanese army were defeated he decided to seek help from Russia, but died of burns following a plane crash in Formosa (Taiwan) on his way to Manchuria.
